Additional Notes

Complaint: On 12/2/2012, ******* ******* worked on my house due to a leak in a room and charged me $420 on 12/2/2012. On 12/7/2012, ******* worked on another part of my roof and cut out a bunch of tiles to widen the valley of a part of the roof. The roof is tile and should never have been cut so wide when it is tile roof, not composite, etc. I paid him $550 on 12/7/2012. Not only did ******* do that but he also put tar all over on top and underneath the tiles and made a big mess out of it. When the house didn't need it to begin with and he did it anyhow. After understanding what he did and finding out what a **** of work and mess it is, I called ****** ******, the owner and person who kept throwing ******* ******* on me to work on my house. ****** ****** promised the next morning that he would come out to check on his work per my request. ****** never showed up but instead ******* did without notice & invitation. ******* was pompeous and would not take any fault, but admitted 2 tiles were broken and to have him fix his work would cost me $200 more to fix it. I don't want ******* on my property ever again or his 2 ******* buddies that made the mess on my house which is worse than what I had to begin with. On 3/20/2013, ******* replaced a few broken tiles that he and his 2 ******* buddies probably broke to begin with. He said after replacing them with my other tiles, "I want to charge you more, but I will charge you $200 instead and would appreciate a tip" with a smirk on his face. After all this, definately I would like my $550 back from their work of messing up my roof. To unfix their mess, redue work messed up on my house costs me much more money to clean it up, redue it right. ****** ****** is very rude, obnoxious and so is Roberto and his friends that mistreated me, treated me like ****, were rude, took advantage of me being a woman, charging me as much money as they can and doing horrible quality work. I will tell everyone not to go to ****** Construction/Roofing in Sacramento, CA on Auburn!! A words!

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund $550 back. An apology from them also for taking advantage of me for being a woman, "taking as much money as they can from for someone they feel is an easy target to take advantage of".
